ABC has today given an early renewal to The Middle, ordering a ninth season of the show for the 2017/18 season.
This is the earliest renewal ABC has handed to The Middle since back in 2011, when the show received an early pick-up for its third season.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros., the studio behind The Middle, has already signed the entire cast on a one-year contract.
ABC is reportedly still in discussions to renew ABC's top-rated sitcom, Modern Family, whose cast contracts are up this year.
